The Kindle has landed.
It's finally here -- the Kindle has landed. Jeff Bezos of Amazon.com kept a veil of secrecy around the much-hyped ebook reader until the official launch. The ebook reader, which we earlier described here
, retails for $399. It uses electronic ink, like the Sony ebook reader, which is very easy to read. The biggest selling point is that your purchase price also buys you free wireless connectivity to Amazon.com: you have the largest selection of books online right at your fingertips. You can buy and download a new book in minutes, and all the books cost $9.99 or less.
A number of bestselling authors have been trying out the device and are giving it rave reviews. We haven't tried it out yet, but we were quite impressed with bestselling author Neil Gaiman's (Stardust, American Gods, Sandman
) incredibly positive review. Neil loves his technology and he wouldn't say it was great if it wasn't. See his video
